From an asthmatic childhood spent on post-war Birmingham bomb-sites, Mike Leaver escaped from cruel State boarding schools to careers as a lab technician, accountant, pleasure-boat captain, and local builder.

Mike has also been:

  • a homeless hermit inhabiting a derelict boat surrounded by drug addicts;
  • an adventurer/mountaineer in the UK, Scandinavia, and North Africa
  • a semi-retired handyman writing books while enjoying an ideal life off-grid in a converted lorry in a pretty coastal town.

Embark on an extraordinary journey of an eccentric pursuing dreams of love, writing and the path to happiness in a memoir that’s as charming as it is quirky.
